3) Technical details
============================
The vulnerability is caused due to an indexing error in the "ShowPropertiesDialog()"
method (ChartFX.ClientServer.Core.dll) of the ChartFX ActiveX Control. This can be
exploited to write a single byte value to an arbitrary memory location via the
"pageNumber" parameter. Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.
